We Help Dads be Good Parents and Raise Healthy Kids

About Dad Central

Dad Central is a national network of researchers, practitioners, leaders, community members, and passionate supporters who believe there is an urgent need for fathers to be actively engaged in the lives of their children. The network exists to multiply the impact, and drive results for families across Canada. Our vision is to see every child have access to an involved, responsible, and devoted dad. We exist to connect, inspire and train dads and communities to build healthy children together.

If you’ve found us you’re either a dad or someone who supports dads. 

For Dads

Let’s face it, most dads usually go it alone. But you don’t have to. Learning from other dads and getting guidance along the way makes a big difference. The results? You see yourself enjoying and guiding your children to be their best. What’s more valuable than feeling the satisfaction and pride of seeing your child(ren) grow confident and successful?

Dads, we’ve got your back. Join our community to get tools to build a family life that satisfies you.

Whether you start with our new dad manual or need help dealing with toddlers; working on your relationship with your partner, or balancing your time, health and energy, we have tools to support your fatherhood adventure.

Would you consider helping more dads be there for their kids by joining us?

Dad Central is grateful for the generous sponsorship of the Public Health Agency of Canada and Dove Men+Care. They have helped amplify our impact on fathers and families

The problem we still face is a lack of funding to support dads in their parenting adventure. Research tells us Canadian dads care about their fatherhood role and want to be involved, but they lack the confidence, skills, and resources to do so.

Research overwhelmingly confirms that positively involved dads help raise great kids. Kids who are more confident, healthy and successful.
